Mission Statement

Philadelphia ICO is a specialized local outreach program that privides outdoor and environmental educational experiences for youth in the Philadelphia area. Its goal is to provide unique experiences for Philadelphia youth to discover the beauty of nature in an effort to strengthen their ability to face challenges in their lives. Fostering teamwork and cooperation are major aspects of the Philly ICO experiences. Participates naturally develop interpersonal skills and self esteem through an active relationship with the outdoors and interaction with positive adult role models.

Description

Our volunteers lead outings for groups of 6 to 12 students from local schools. Typical outings include hiking, canoeing, and overnight camping trips. ICO volunteers introduce a variety of youth to the natural world and provide wilderness adventures to children who ordinarily would not have access to these places.
